Civil Rights Groups Challenge Indiana’s Use of Crosscheck:
Lawsuit Cites Palast's Work On Kobach's Racist Voter Purging Program

Greg Palast 

I am thrilled that the NAACP and the League of Women Voters are using our Crosscheck investigation evidence to stop Jim Crow in Indiana. Only 27 states left to go. Next target: Virginia, where a so-called Democrat, Terry McAuliffe needs to dump Trump’s Crosscheck purges.

The lawsuit, which was filed on Wednesday, August 23, challenges Indiana Senate Bill 442 which changed the way the state implemented Crosscheck. Previously, when an Indiana voter was flagged by …more

Bernie and Jesse join hands
to take on Trump’s Vote Thief-in-Chief

Greg Palast 

[Dateline: Chicago]  “Why would somebody say a crazy statement like that?” Bernie had his arms spread like gull wings, fingers scribbling facts in the air.

“Why” was not really a question.

Watch this five-minute video of Sen. Bernie Sanders and Rev. Jesse Jackson and their alliance to take on Kris Kobach, the Dr. Moriarty of vote suppression.

In Jesse Jackson’s private ministry office, the Reverend and I had just laid out President Trump’s claim that 3 million Americans were …more

Behind The Black Vote Drop:
Jim Crow in Cyberspace
Greg Palast with Joy Reid on MSNBC

Reports claim black voter turnout fell for first time in 20 years. But it’s not that black voters are too lazy to come out to vote, it’s that they’re trying to vote and their names have disappeared from voter rolls.

We estimate that before the last election, 1.1 million voters were removed from voter rolls in sates where Crosscheck was being used. Crosscheck is the flawed-by-design, racist vote purging system instigated by Trump’s Vote Suppressor in Chief, Kris Kobach, who this past week was appointed as the Vice Chair of the Presidential Commission for Election Integrity – see story.

The intent is clear: The GOP are using the fake claims about millions of illegal alien and double voters as an excuse to take Crosscheck nationwide so they can whitewash voter rolls before 2018 and 2020.

Trump picks Al Capone of Vote Rigging
To investigate Federal Voter Fraud

Greg Palast 

By Greg Palast for Alternet

Kris Kobach is the GOP mastermind behind a secretive system that purged 1.1 million Americans from the voter rolls.

Kris Kobach was spooning down vanilla ice cream when I showed him the thick pages of evidence documenting his detailed plan to rig the presidential election of 2016.

The Secretary of State of Kansas, sucking up carbs at a Republican Party Fundraiser recognized the documents – and yelled at me, “YOU’RE A LIAR!” then ran for it while still trying to wolf down the last spoonful.

But documents don’t lie.

That was 2015 (yes, the ballot heist started way back). Today this same man on the run, Kris Kobach, is now Donald Trump’s choice to …more

Turn-Around:
Joy Reid Interviewed by Greg Palast

Greg Palast 

“It is difficult to get the issue of voter suppression on television at the moment, I think for a couple of reasons. Number one: Donald Trump – he sort of blocks out the sun. He’s taken up so much of the airtime on any given day that the media just feels that it can’t not talk about him. Between the insane things that …more
